11:02 am
a racist and a cheat? here in the uk, tick—tock, tick—tock goes the clock. but with four weeks till march 29th, good morning. the prime minister mentions the husband of shamima begum — delay for the first time. the teenager from east london who travelled to syria to join my guests today are political commentator yasmin alibhai—brown, the so—called islamic state group — agnes poirier of french weekly news has told the bbc he wants magazine marianne, italian filmmaker to take her and their newborn son annalisa piras and greg katz to live in his native netherlands. of the associated press news agency. yago riedijk fought for is, welcome to you all. and is currently in kurdish thank you so much. custody in north eastern syria. he's been speaking exclusively there was no deal at the end of the second summit to our middle east correspondent quentin sommerville. we will bring in that interview in a few minutes. let's go back to space, because the rocket has successfully attached itself to the international space station. this is a successful docking, a hard capture, as they call it.
11:03 am
right now, the crew is going to start... the dragon vehicle, as it is called... it launched yesterday morning, it is the latest in a series of tests at the capsule has to pass in order to get approval from nasa to transport people, so let's hear what is going on there with that successful docking. be advised we will need 15 minutes for ventilation to be complete before we will carry out any other activities. copy that, we have the hd camera on. cow. copy that, we have the hd camera on. copy, we will come on board with you guys. now the dragon has completed the docking sequence, it is going to
11:04 am
undergo a series of checks, they will pressurise the vestibule and do some legal checks, and then we will be able to open up the hatch. for now, why don't we send it over to gary quickly, he is standing by in the international space station flight the international space station flight control room, how's everybody feeling there? dragon is now attached to the space station, it must be great. good vibes in here, as soon as we got hard capture confirmed, we had a round of applause here, it was very exciting. the beginning of a new era of human space flight, this is the first step, until we start having commercial crew providers are bringing humans to the international space station, lodging from american soil once again, a very exciting time. for the crew, soil once again, a very exciting time. forthe crew, a soil once again, a very exciting time. for the crew, a lot of monitoring operations, successful retreat commands sent, it was a very smooth docking for dragging it to the international space station. still a lot of work to do, again, like you said, they will be pressurising the vestibule and
11:05 am
entering the hatch. we will cover that life, you might see them wearing hard—line oxygen and taking some airsamples, wearing hard—line oxygen and taking some air samples, just part of the normal procedures for a new vehicle, or for this particular new vehicle, just to make sure everything is ok, and then maybe later on today, we will do a nice welcoming ceremony to officially welcome dragon to the international space station. congratulations again from the teams here at mission control houston, and an amazing docking of dragon the international space station, a lot of work to do, we will pass it back to you to you to wrap us up. but we have a lot of work to do, thanks. all right, thank you much, gary. so we got this thing attached, and we will wait a little while while they pressurise the vestibule, judy checks, and then it will be time to open the hatch. so we will take a break, but before we do, we have a special guest who is just about to join us. we talked... there we are,
11:06 am
there has been a successful docking asa there has been a successful docking as a spacex's new capsule arriving at the international space station. so that is good news for elon musk‘s spacex space exploration company. a lot of cheers and applause from mission control with the successful docking. more on that throughout the morning. eight brexit supporting lawyers — seven of them also mps — have set out what concessions are necessary if they are to back a brexit deal. the attorney general, geoffrey cox, has been trying to reach a deal with leaders in brussels in an attempt to secure a guarantee the northern irish backstop will be temporary. this is to prevent a hard border in the island of ireland. according to the sunday times, the group would like to see a legally binding clause that would override the current wording on the backstop,
11:07 am
and they want a route out if trade talks with the eu fail. let's speak to our political correspondent nick eardley. just tell us more about what this group is trying to achieve and whether it means that theresa may's brexit‘s deal is any more likely to get through the comments. potentially a slightly more likely, but i wouldn't be in a place yet where we are closer to that. basically, this group of lawyers will scrutinise whatever the government comes back with in the next few days, and say either it meets our standards, which is that it allows the uk to get out of the backstop it allows the uk to get out of the ba cksto p if it allows the uk to get out of the backstop if it needs to, or if it has a time limit or not. that will bea has a time limit or not. that will be a big test for the prime minister, because within that group, you had key brexiteers, like the former brexit secretary, dominic raab, but also the dup‘s nigel dodds, too, constituencies within parliament that if theresa may is to get her a deal through, she will have to win over. this morning, we we re have to win over. this morning, we were also hearing from international
11:08 am
trade secretary, liam fox, he has been on the andrew marr show talking about whether this is a genuine prospect or not. he thinks it is, he thinks it is a genuine olive branch. but the big question remains about whether or not the prime minister can actually meet what these brexiteers are calling for. i hope we will leave at the end of march was not it would be breaking a promise. it would be unfortunate, but if we have no option in order to deliver a smooth brexit, then so be it. i think it is important also for your viewers to understand the limitations on that. first of all, this is not a unilateral call by parliament, this has to be agreed, notjust be at parliament, this has to be agreed, not just be at the parliament, this has to be agreed, notjust be at the european commission, but by every single one of the 27 government. so liam fox saying he is not totally against the idea of extending the brexit process, but i think this is a view shared by a number of brexiteers, it has to be for a reason. whatever labour said today?
11:09 am
we know that labour have just as many splits as the conservatives on where to go from here. the party earlier this week said it would now backin earlier this week said it would now back ina earlier this week said it would now back in a public vote, another referendum to try and stop what it sees as the damaging prospect of no's deal. but there is a significant constituency within the party he will never back that. —— of theresa may's deal it was said this morning that up to 70 labour mps would refuse to back another referendum. they are calling for a free vote, so they don't have to break the party whip. 0n the other side, tony blair saying there are some in the party who are extremely unhappy with not going further in europe, who are saying stick with it for now. he also sympathises with those who broke away from the party a couple of weeks ago, because it hadn't moved fast enough on brexit. we also heard from the party's shadow business minister, rebecca
11:10 am
long—bailey, who didn't sound too enthusiastic about the idea of another referendum. that will be within the gift of jeremy corbyn, determined by whatever the word of the amendment is. it will be a difficult decision for many mps, and we recognise that. i hope we don't have to get to that position, that theresa may doesn't start to move on her red lines. europe is amenable to moving on the red lines and can move very quickly on amending the withdrawal agreement and political declaration. she needs to recognise the crisis that she has imposed on british politics. she can't even agree within her own party about what amendments to make to the withdrawal agreement and political declaration, and it is a sorry state of affairs. so labour are keen to throw the pressure back to the conservative party, but is if you ever needed reminding, both on the conservative and labour side this morning, just how fractious the brexit as she has been for the main parties in the uk.
11:11 am
thank you forjoining us. growth in private firms has stagnated as businesses brace themselves for a possible no—deal brexit — that's according to a new report from the confederation of british industry. the research suggests that the balance of companies reporting growth is at its weakest since 2013. the cbi's chief economist, rain newton—smith, said that uncertainty over brexit is making day—to—day business decisions "increasingly problematic". the husband of shamima begum — the teenager from east london who travelled to syria to join the so—called islamic state group — has told the bbc he wants to take her and their newborn son to live in his native netherlands. yago riedijk fought for is, and is currently in kurdish custody in north eastern syria. he's been speaking exclusively to our middle east correspondent quentin sommerville. shamima begum's husband paints a far darker picture of life with the islamic state group than she did. remember, she said it was a normal life. well he describes attending the stoning of a woman
11:12 am
who was being punished for what he called fornication. he talks about piles of bodies in at the city, he says that there are daughters starved to death as a result of malnutrition, because they were so hungry within the is group. of course, they eventually surrendered, but only when the islamic state were losing. this was a match made in extremism, made by the islamic state. and i asked him about his marriage to shamima begum, which was arranged by is. shamima moved over when she was 15. you met in raqqa, she was at the women's centre in raqqa. you married her when she was 15 years old. that's correct. how in any way is that acceptable? you were what, 23? ithink so, yeah, i remember. and you thought that was ok? to be honest, when my friend came and he said there was a girl interested in marriage, i wasn't really interested because of her age.
11:13 am
but, i accepted the offer, and we sat down and she seemed... like a... how do you say it? she seemed like a, in a good state of mind. so, it was acceptable for you to marry a 15—year—old girl? it was her own choice, she the one who asked to look for a partnerfor her, then i was invited, and yeah, she was very young. and it maybe would have been better for her to wait a bit, but she didn't, she chose to get married, and i chose to marry her. just as shamima begum's interview with the media was problematic for her desire to return to the uk,
11:14 am
this will cause problems problems for yago riedijk, because he admitted that he was an is foot soldier, he fought in places such as aleppo. he was wounded while fighting, and eventually, he was imprisoned by is, they suspected him of being a dutch spy. he was tortured while he was in prison and he said that he tried to escape. but this is a man who joined the is group, fought for them, and was a die—hard supporter for many years, though he says he no longer supports them. the truth is that shamima begum and yago riedijk lost control of their fate when theyjoined that extremist group. and yago riedijk might find it is as difficult for him to return back home, as it is for his wife, shamima begum. rescuers hope to resume their search later today for a british climber who's been missing on one of the world's highest mountains for nearly a week. tom ballard and his italian climbing partner, daniele nardi, were scaling a peak in pakistan known as "killer mountain",
11:15 am
when they last made contact. 0ur correspondent, richard galpin is in islamabad. richard, we are expecting the search to resume today? i don't think we can be absolutely sure about that, but what we do know is that the rescue effort has been severely hampered for the past three days, but now it does look like the weather is improving, which means things can start moving again. what we have been told is that another climber called alex, a spanish climber, who has been on k2, has now been taken on a pakistan military helicopter from k2 to the killer mansion, as it is called. the plan is that he will deploy three high altitude drones, which he has with him, presumably for the ascent
11:16 am
originally for a k2. they will use those drones to try and scour the mountain and try and find the two missing climbers. 0bviously, mountain and try and find the two missing climbers. obviously, it is not going to be easy, it will depend very much on the weather, obviously, if there are high wind, it will be impossible, if there is low visibility, it will be impossible. that is the hope, we don't know whether he will arrive in time for him to actually start using these drones today, before it gets dark. thank you, richard. the headlines on bbc news: the dutch husband of shamima begum, the teenager who has been stripped of her british citizenship forjoining the islamic state group, has told the bbc he wants them to live in the netherlands. eight lawyers who back brexit — seven of them mps — set out the concessions they require from the eu to support the pm's brexit deal. and america's latest astronaut capsule has just docked at the international space station.
11:17 am
sport and for a full round up, from the bbc sport centre, here's richard askham. england have given themselves a great chance of winning the shebelieves cup after a thrilling draw against the usa. phil neville's side drew 2—2 against the world champions in nashville, to set up a winner—takes—all match against japan on tuesday. the lionesses scored two excellent goals through manchester city pair steph houghton and nikita parris. jo currie is there for us. what is in a name? everything and nothing if you are part of the us women's national team, who played this game with their female idols on the back of their shirts. half an hour in, and the real meghan was putting her name on the scoresheet, keeping the england goalkeeper rooted to the spot. when you are training with world number one, you need a leader. step up captain for the sublime equaliser. some try what
11:18 am
an equaliser! really well paid and well worked, that. no england were finding theirfeet, well worked, that. no england were finding their feet, and well worked, that. no england were finding theirfeet, and their range. this put the lioness is ahead. what a great goal, england lead against the world champions. the problem with the champions is that you can never write them off. while scrappy, they were able to find a way through england's dog into defence and to deny them the win. we had fantastic performances today, we had players that played with a smile on their face, and like i say, the result for me is irrelevant to what i saw on the pitch. not relevant to the competition. this result means that the lioness can now fly off to sunny florida in the knowledge that a win against japan on tuesday florida in the knowledge that a win againstjapan on tuesday will seal the trophy. perhaps it is now time to believe. the first of three premier league matches today gets underway in the next hour. liverpool have the chance to regain top spot when they take on everton in the merseyside derby later but first up their former boss
11:19 am
brendan rodgers will make his return to management with leicester. his first game in charge is at watford, who he managed early in his career. it will be a tough game for us, because one, they are a very good side, good players, good physicality. and also, i know the manager well, because it was my firstjob and it was difficult for any team to go there. so we will expect a tough game, but i am looking forward to it. the european indoor athletics is into its final day with plenty of british medal hopes later on. multi—eventer tim duckworth led going into day two of the heptathlon. second place in the hurdles has seen him slip into second behind spain'sjorge urena. they're taking part in the pole vault right now before the 1000 metres this evening. in the men's 60 metre hurdles event proper — defending champion andrew pozzi went
11:20 am
in the second semi final. he finished second behind the favourite 0rlando 0rtega. he did run a season's best though. the final is at 6.10. england s women will be looking to bounce back from defeat in the one day series against india, as they turn to the t20 format. the first of three t20 matches takes place tomorrow. and with the world cup in the shortest form of the game just a year away, the skipper says it s important for her team to start to build some form. i don't think it changes too much, we have had success in both formats over the last couple of years. like isaid, it over the last couple of years. like i said, it gives us a chance to have a bit of freedom, we have some really exciting talents, it is a chance to be let off the leash a bit without the pressure of having to craft an innings, whatever it might be. so it is a great opportunity with one year out from the world cup in australia, it will come around very quickly, so it is an opportunity for the girls to
11:21 am
establish themselves in the side if they haven't done so already, or to keep strong performances into the world cup. that's all the sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. new reserach suggests that 150 young men have died after going missing on a night out over the last nine years. that's according to figures analysed by bbc 5 live investigates. campaigners are calling for more patrols around waterways and for men to look after each other on nights out. megan paterson reports. charlie was in his first year at university, when he got separated from his friends in a canal. if one person had asked him, are you 0k, do you know how to get home? and that is all it takes, asking someone if
11:22 am
they are ok. everyone should look out for each other more. sadly, charlie's story is not uncommon. new research found that between 2010—18, 150 men initially reported missing died after nights out where alcohol was involved. that is an average of 17 per year. most end up in water. the number of deaths has prompted some towns and cities to set up volunteer groups are to patrol waterways at night. in manchester, plans for fencing around the stretch of canal where charlie died had been submitted to the city council. police in greater manchester say a 17—year—old boy died in hospital last night after being stabbed in the village of hale barns near altrincham. two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of his murder. the death follows the killing of a 17 —year—old girl who was stabbed on friday in a park in romford in east london.
11:23 am
0ur correspondent simon clemison sent this update from the scene. this is the park where it happened. young people come to hang out here and as you can see, there is a children's playground here but in the foreground is the forensic tent from yesterday because this playpark, over the weekend that become the scene of a full forensic investigation. we now know victim was jodie chesney. her grandmother told people it was her own social media. she said it was an unprovoked attack and called it a needless violence. of course, there has been a huge focus on knife crime in london that follows a very high number of homicides last year in the capital city. but police say, the picture is improving, although, events such as this are a reminder for them of the need to carry on that work and of course, jodie chesney was not the only teenager to die over the last couple of days. a 17—year—old boy has been stabbed to death in greater manchester in hale barns near altrincham.
11:24 am
very few details about that case at the moment. it's still very early days in the investigation we are told from the police but we do believe at the moment, to 17—year—old boys have been arrested on suspicion of murder. —— 217—year—old boys. here, in romford, today police are saying they are doing whatever they can to bring whoever killed jodie chesney to justice, there will be extra patrols today here in london and in greater manchester but right now, here, there are no arrests so far in this case. free tampons and other sanitary products will be offered to every female hospital patient in england who needs them — from this summer. nhs officials say women and girls will be able to ask for the products free of charge. the british medical association had argued it was inconsistent for some hospitals to give out razors and shaving foam, but not offer
11:25 am
women sanitary products. andy moore reports. a study last month by the doctors' union, the british medical association, found that many nhs trusts were handing out free razors and shaving foam, but not sanitary products. at present, some trusts in england provide them, others don't. in some hospitals, sanitary products aren't even available in their shops. the new policy will make the products free of charge in all hospitals in england from the summer onwards. the chief executive of the nhs in england, simon stevens, said it was absolutely right that everyone had access to the essentials of daily life during their time in hospital. the move has been welcomed by campaigners against period poverty. it's positive to see what is intended to be happening, but we would like to see more being done around this agenda, because we are way behind in terms of where we should be. the british medical association said it was pleased its campaign had culminated in such a successful result.
11:26 am
the organisation said free products would bring an end to indignity on top of ill—health. and the bma doesn't believe the new policy will be expensive. it estimated the cost would be just over £500 a year to any hospital that wasn't already providing free products. david beckham has been honored with a statue outside his former club, la galaxy. the former england captain joined the american side in 2007, helping the team to two cup titles wins. the statue shows the player taking a free kick — his trademark move that spawned the film "bend it like beckham" in 2002. now it's time for a look at the weather. we are expecting wet and windy weather across england and wales, the rain has already arrived,
11:27 am
pushing its way northwards, heavy at times. it is getting up toward borders and northern ireland. strongest winds across northern scotland, but easing and showers are easing with some more sunshine. should turn more driver wales and south—west of england, temperatures up south—west of england, temperatures up to 12 degrees. it will get windy here late afternoon and into the evening, we could see gusts of up to 80 mph near some western coasts. the wind will drop in these areas, but it will be when the across the midlands and northern england, with some heavy rain and perhaps no on the tops of the pennines. some heavy rain close to southern parts of england for a time overnight. the strong wind in the north—east of england in the morning for the rush hour. the storm is out into the north sea, best of the sunshine for the eastern side of the uk. temperatures are back down to where they should be at this time of year, 8-10 they should be at this time of year, 8—10 celsius.
